COVID-19: NCAA orders cargo flights to include packing list

Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) has stated that all requests for cargo flights should include a packing list indicating cargo contents just as requests for diplomatic flights should be channeled through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This development was contained in a letter (ref: NCAA/DG/AIR/11/16/110; dated 28 March, 2020) on the reviewed measures on COVID-19 addressed to all airlines local and foreign in Nigeria by the Director General of NCAA, Captain Musa Nuhu.

The NCAA Director noted that all flight crew should remain on board during handling of cargo (off-loading and loading) as all ground staff should exercise caution and wear appropriate personal protective equipment while handling aircraft.

According to the Captain Nuhu, all requests for medical evacuation  flights should include veritable, stamped and signed medical report from a teaching hospital.
